I wanted to take a moment to thank Jordy Meow for allowing me use of his photograph for the cover of my latest Dr. Nekros story, “Diatribe and Divulgence.” This story partially take place in an abandoned amusement park, and when I saw a picture Jordy had taken, I knew it would be perfect.
I contacted Jordy, a Frenchman living in Japan if I’m not mistaken, and he was extremely gracious in allowing me use of his work. Though I altered the photograph slightly, it’s still his photograph, to be sure, and he deserves all the credit.
Jordy takes amazing pictures. He particularly likes abandoned settings, and the work he produces is both beautiful and haunting. I do hope you’ll visit his website, particularly http://www.totorotimes.com/urban-exploration/nara-dreamland-abandoned-rollercoasters/.
You can also follow him on Twitter at @TigrouMeow.
Here’s the original photograph by Jordy …
And then here it is altered for my story’s cover …
Thanks so much, Jordy!
